Sean Barker @ Bowdoin

I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Bowdoin College. My research interests are broadly in the areas of smart buildings, sustainability, distributed systems, and cloud computing. Recent and past projects have included designing energy-aware smart homes (e.g., through analysis of smart meter data), resource management in data centers (e.g., memory sharing in virtual machines), and cloud-based databases (e.g., through on-demand live migration).

Prior to joining Bowdoin, I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2014, where I was advised by Prashant Shenoy and David Irwin. I spent my undergraduate years at Williams College, where I completed a B.A. with Honors in Computer Science in 2009, advised by Jeannie Albrecht.

A list of publications may be viewed here and a CV may be viewed here.

For the Spring 2019 semester, I am teaching CSCI 3325: Distributed Systems.
